Crash Kelly – Touch Me

Crash Kelly – Touch Me

Crash Kelly are back with their first single (“Touch Me”) in ten years and the release of a lyric video for it.

Crash Kelly, founded and lead by Canadian guitarist, singer, songwriter and author Sean Kelly, is returning to rock n roll duty with a brand new single, “Touch Me”, produced by Sean and multi-platinum producer/engineer Frank Gryner (Rob Zombie, A Perfect Circle)

Crash Kelly‘s sound is best described as 70’s Glam Rock on the early 80’s Sunset Strip… T-Rex and Mott The Hoople by way of Mötley Crüe and Hanoi Rocks, with more than a fair dose of Alice Cooper, Cheap Trick and Thin Lizzy thrown in for proper effect.

Initially active between 2002 – 2009, Crash Kelly released two critically acclaimed cult classics, ‘Penny Pills‘ and ‘Electric Satisfaction‘ via Century Media’s rock n roll imprint Liquor and Poker Music, followed by a third album, ‘One More Heart Attack‘ via Opening Day/Universal Music. All three albums were released in Japan via Spiritual Beast/Universal, and a European “Best Of” compilation, ‘Love You Electric‘, was released via the Bad Reputation, earning the band an 8/10 full page review in Classic Rock Magazine. The band toured North America as support for Alice Cooper on his 2006 Dirty Diamonds tour, and also toured the US alongside Century Media label mates Backyard Babies. Crash Kelly also toured the UK and Europe alongside The Quireboys and Enuff Z’Nuff, and in their native Canada as support to ex-Guns N’ Roses guitarist Gilby Clarke (who also produced ‘Electric Satisfaction‘ and ‘One More Heart Attack‘ in his Los Angeles based Redrum Studios).

The decade that Sean spent away from Crash Kelly saw him become a highly in demand guitarist, songwriter, producer and collaborator. He has toured the world and recorded with a number of multi platinum acts including Nelly Furtado, Helix, Lee Aaron, Coney Hatch, Honeymoon Suite, Gilby Clarke, Alan Frew (Glass Tiger) Carole Pope/Rough Trade, Harlequin, Trapper, Howie D, Doc Walker and many more. He has recorded four classical guitar albums, two of which charted in the US Billboard Top 10. In 2015, Sean was cast to star alongside Twisted Sister lead singer Dee Snider and Taylor Dayne in Dee Snider’s Rock N Roll Christmas Tale, which ran during the Holiday Season at Toronto’s famed Winter Garden Theatre and played to over 20,000 people.

Sean is also the author of the Amazon chart-topping book Metal On Ice: Tales from Canada’s Hard Rock and Heavy Metal Heroes (Dundurn Press), and is a sought after guitar clinician and music educator. He currently teaches Music with the Toronto Catholic District School Board.

With the new single “Touch Me”, Sean returns to his glam rocking roots. Musical support comes from Dave Reimer on bass and Tim Timleck on drums. This is the first release for Canadian Shield Music, a new imprint formed by Kelly and Gryner to bring 70s and 80s influenced hard rock to a very specific audience who longs for the days of glossy rock magazines, fully stocked record store shelves, loud guitars and big hooks.”

Alias - Waiting For Love

Alias – Waiting For Love

Alias - Waiting For Love

Canadian Hair Metal supergroup, formed in 1988 in Toronto by vocalist Freddy Curci and guitarist Steve DeMarchi of the Canadian arena rock band Sheriff, along with Heart founding members Roger Fisher, Steve Fossen, and Mike DeRosier.

The single for “Waiting For Love” released in 1990 by EMI in the US, UK and Europe and by Capitol in Canada peaked at #4 (Canada), #13 (US Hot 100 Billboard) and #87 in the UK

Lyrics
I look ok but I’m not myself, standing by the phone
Darling I’ve been wondering how I’m gonna let you go

You made me build you a perfect world, to keep you satisfied
But now you’re just a broken dream, and when I get back my pride

You’ll still be waiting for love
You’ll still be waiting for the sun to rise,
In the middle of the night
You’ll still be waiting for love
I know you’ll be waiting when that train passes by
You’ll still be waiting for love

Like a dream there’s a lucky feeling, coming from my soul
Girl I guess I learned the truth
That you already know (Oh oh oh)

Took me a while to realize, it’s a dark and lonely town
And you’ll know where you’ll find yourself,
when the wall comes
Tumbling down

You’ll still be waiting for love
You’ll still be waiting for the sun to shine,
In the middle of the night
You’ll still be waiting for love
I know you’ll be waiting when that train passes by
You’ll still be waiting for love

I lost my heart, I lost my mind
But it really doesn’t matter
I’m gonna leave my tears behind
And you’ll still be waiting

LYRICS:

Get down – rock steady – this town is hot ‘n’ ready.
This hibernation’s far too long
we’ll rock the nation – a billion strong
there’s no denying – we’re the new breed
you’ll beg for mercy but you love to bleed
we’ve got the power from the left to the right,
we’ve got the glory when you’re there to ignite
We’ve got the mind to turn you inside and out,
Let’s see your hands!
Get down – rock steady, my gun – is ready
get down – rock steady, this town – is hot ‘n’ ready!
Ready for you!
No explanation, no degradation,
we’re all here for the celebration!
we’ve got the power from the left to the right,
we’ve got the glory when you’re there to ignite
We’ve got the mind to turn you inside and out,
Let’s see your hands when you scream and shout!
Get down – rock steady, my gun – is ready
get down – rock steady, this town – is hot ‘n’ ready!
Hot and ready!
Get down – rock steady, my gun – is ready
get down – rock steady, this town – is hot ‘n’ ready!
